No compassion

MANY young people do not like to live with their elderly parents because they believe they will be too much of a burden. So they allow them to live alone or put them in old people's homes.


While these homes have staff who generally look after the elderly well, and who are on hand to call doctors in emergencies, it is very important for them to have the care and concern of their relatives in mind.


We have many elderly who are homeless, living under flyovers. I hope young people can start taking responsibility for the wlderly.
